Valve requirements are typically split into the following categories:
|Piping Valves||Instrument Valves|
|Ball, Floating||Safety Valves|
|Ball, Trunnion Mounted||Bursting Discs|
|GG&Check, Forged||Actuated Valves|
|TC Gate, Slab||Special Items|
|TC Gate, Expanding|
|Butterfly, Tripple Eccentric|
|Dual Plate Check|
|Nozzle / Axial Flow Check|
– a VALVE PACKAGE supplier
Valve packages are typically offered by valve distributors. BFE is a valid alternative. BFE manufacture the majority of valves typically required for a Mechanical / Equipment package (Ball, Gate-, Globe- & Check valves forged/cast, Double Block & Bleed, TC Gate (Slab/Expanding) – manual and actuated – typically 70-85% of package value). Consequently there is no extra markup on the majority of the valve scope. The balance covering B’fly, Wafer- & Axial Flow Check, and Special Items, will be offered from manufacturers nominated to the Project, manufacturers with a proven track-record in the North Sea. Typical Instrument valves may also be sourced (PSV/Control valves, Special Items)
Send the inquiry to Mr. Simone Magni in BFE to find out if this alternative is worthwhile.
This should be an interesting alternative for Mechanical Package / Equipment package vendors. These vendors are not buying large quantities of «bulk» items like the EP-contracts procuring valves for New Project Developments using Frame Agremeements / Project Frame Agreements where the total valve scope is split into the typical valve packages as shown – due to the resources and hours required for selection / approval processes valid for the total Project.
